London Police officer knocked to the ground in ‘sickening’ attacked as onlookers take selfies

Police officers who stopped to help an apparent assault victim were set upon in a “sickening, shocking and disgraceful attack” which has been condemned by the Home Secretary and police chiefs.

Video on social media shows an officer pinned down on the ground and being kicked, while his female colleague is pushed when she tries to intervene.

Several men, including one with a baseball bat, surround the Scotland Yard officers swearing, shouting and filming on their phones, with one even dancing a jig and taking a selfie during the assault.
